    Default Ontario woodcock reports 2014

    Let's try to have single thread with wc reports, would be useful for everyone, n'est-ce pas?
    Reports only pls. If others don't chime in, it will be limited

    Oct 8
    I checked my local city park for wc and indeed they were there - 4 birds found in 5 min (I know where to look ).

    So I headed to Newmarket area.
    windy, wet, temp 12 C
    cover - mostly goldenrods under poplar
    found 10 birds in about 1.5 hours
    I can only shake my head (like that guy in waterfowl section could only laugh), I missed 5 out of 5!
    I think this is my new record

    I really need to find some good coverts. Woodcock are quite elusive to me. I just pop the odd one up when grouse hunting. Never been able to actually connect with one

    Oct. 7 in "the Clinton area," we flushed one bird out of a classic spot: young aspen. Given the tiny size of the cover this was likely a flight bird. I am still finding few birds there, but we have had persistent south winds.

    That was the only bird on the day but I was busy with pheasants.

    Wind supposed to be swinging to the north for the weekend....

    Very strong winds today up here. Should thin a bit of the foliage.
    I 'm suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.
